According to the images created by the community, a giraffe had a skeleton to have been killed by armed poachers,” the Conservancy said. The female and her calf were part of a family of white giraffes. Right now, only a white bull, a giraffe will remain.

“This is a very sad day for the community of the Ijara to the program as a whole,” said Mohammed Ahmednoor, the manager of the Water board, in a statement. “It has been a long-term loss of the genetics studies, and studies that have been large-scale investment in the area by the community, and now it is gone to the drain.
